Well, look at this review for The Life & Death of a Sex Doll. Why, I believe that’s yet another positive review for my first published sci-fi effort. I like this part best:
I tend to avoid sci-fi because heavily used computer jargon and a superfluous presence of robots and androids can be hard for me to connect to. I guess I’ve never been much of a techie geek. But with The Life and Death of a Sex Doll, I was able to breeze through the shop talk with a comprehension I usually struggle to find. There was plenty of humor throughout, which I always appreciate, and the story flowed easily.
As always, I want to thank the reviewer, in this case Jezzy Wolfe. This is a very good streak of favorable reviews for my book from Belfire Press, and I’m grateful, both to the publisher for sticking with me despite my being insane, and to the many reviewers who have thus far graced their opinions on the two novellas.
I’m told by my publisher that print sales this quarter are atrocious, but that Kindle sales are doing good. I do not yet have specific numbers, but we are not yet at the end of the publishing quarter from whence my title came. And while I am batshit insane, I know how to read a calendar and am adamantly opposed to picking up stalking as a habit. I have far too many hobbies already.
Where was I? Oh, right…thing is, sales should be better in theory now. I’m not saying “You should be buying more copies of the book” because I don’t have a clue what numbers I have. I’m just saying, with this many good reviews in public, I would imagine that sales should be higher. Then again, perhaps I haven’t yet hit the saturation point of enough good reviews to get better sales. I’ll still have to wait a bit longer to find out. Freakin’ suspense is killing me.
But it is a great review, isn’t it? Makes me feel like a proud nerd to know I made my tech lingo approachable to an outsider. =^) So, thanks again to Jezzy for the review and to Liquid Imagination for hosting the review. After y’all check out my review, be sure to look around the site, as Jezzy has another review for another Belfire title, The White Faced Bear, which you might like. Or, I could just post the link too. Yay, Team Belfire. =^)
